|Calculated MW||H=44 KDa|
|Other Names||Branched-chain-amino-acid aminotransferase, mitochondrial, BCAT(m), Placental protein 18, PP18, BCAT2, BCATM, BCT2, ECA40|
|Target/Specificity||This BCAT2 antibody is generated from a rabbit immunized with a KLH conjugated synthetic peptide between 44-78 amino acids from the N-terminal region of human BCAT2.|
|Format||Purified polyclonal antibody supplied in PBS with 0.09% (W/V) sodium azide. This antibody is purified through a protein A column, followed by peptide affinity purification.|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 2 weeks. For long term storage store at -20°C in small aliquots to prevent freeze-thaw cycles.|
|Precautions||BCAT2 Antibody (N-term) is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Synonyms||BCATM, BCT2, ECA40|
|Function||Catalyzes the first reaction in the catabolism of the essential branched chain amino acids leucine, isoleucine, and valine. May also function as a transporter of branched chain alpha-keto acids.|
|Cellular Location||Isoform A: Mitochondrion.|
Catalyzes the first reaction in the catabolism of the essential branched chain amino acids leucine, isoleucine, and valine. May also function as a transporter of branched chain alpha-keto acids.
